The Problem of Receding Gums
Receding gums can occur for many reasons, but when they do, you may suffer a number of negative effects, including:
Exposure of unattractive tooth roots
Unattractive appearance of long teeth
Increased risk of tooth loss
In the past, gum surgery was the only way to avoid these negative consequences. But now the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method allows you to avoid surgery while getting the same benefits.
In traditional gum graft surgery, your receding gums are treated by removing a slice of tissue from someplace in your mouth, typically the roof of your mouth, then placing it over the places where receding gums have exposed your teeth. Gum graft surgery has been used for decades to successfully treat gum recession, but it has some disadvantages:
Often requires multiple visits to the surgeon
Long recovery on a limited diet
Lengthy incision, stitches, and scarring
The Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method overcomes all these limitations to deliver an effective gum treatment alternative.
Advantages of the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method
Our new technique overcomes the limitations of traditional gum surgery. Instead of cutting gum graft material away from other parts of the mouth, local gum tissue is maneuvered into position where it can fulfill its role. This can be done using just a single tiny incision.
Because there is just the one incision and local tissue is used, the procedure can be accomplished quickly, often with your entire mouth being rejuvenated in a single visit.
And because there is only one small incision, the procedure results in less discomfort than traditional gum grafting surgery. This incision also makes for faster recovery. With limited anesthesia, you may be able to return to work after surgery, and you only have to wait one day before returning to your normal diet—unlike the three weeks or more that is common for traditional gum grafting surgery.
And because it’s faster and requires less anesthesia, it may be cheaper than traditional gum surgery, too.
